Justice Department sues AT&T to block Time Warner merger

0
The Department of Justice is suing to block AT&T's bid for Time Warner. The lawsuit will be one of the biggest antitrust cases in decades. AT&T wanted to buy Time Warner for $85 billion. Time Warner owns some TV channels, movies, HBO and CNN. AT&T could, for example, make streaming Game of Thrones not count against your AT&T data cap. Critics have concerns about antitrust because of exactly that kind of scenario. However, Democrats worry the suit is a front for Trump to attack CNN.
